Eastern Link Project Community Information Session 5 December 2017

Published on 01 December 2017

The City of Busselton is holding an information session for the general public to provide detail on the Eastern Link Road Project which, pending authorisation from the relevant agency is scheduled to commence construction in 2018.

The meeting will take place on Tuesday 5 December commencing at 5.30pm. It is being held in the Undalup Room at the City of Busselton Civic and Administration Centre,  2 Southern Drive Busselton (entrance at rear of building via the carpark off Southern Drive). 

The purpose of this evening is to present the design, environmental considerations and funding model for the Eastern Link Project and show a digital animation of the impact the project will have on traffic flow using traffic counter data obtained during congestion periods.

The Ford Road project, on which the City is currently undertaking an environmental referral to the Environmental Protection Authority, will be the subject of future information sessions when it has been submitted to the State and Federal agencies for assessment.

Following this referral it is envisaged that a raft of studies will be required following which, if given approval, the design, viability and eventual cost of that alignment will be able to be more accurately determined.

Please register to attend the Eastern Link Information Session by emailing wendy.mekisic@busselton.wa.gov.au or call 9781 0420.

Outcomes and objectives outlined in this statement align with Key Goal Areas 5 in the City of Busselton’s Strategic Community Plan (2017): A community that is welcoming, friendly and healthy.
